Is your answer 0.57?

A 15 kg, 1m wide door which has frictionless hinges is closed but unlocked. A 400 g ball hits the exact middle of the door at a velocity of 35 m/s and bounces off elastically, thereby causing the door to slowly swing open. How long in seconds does it take for the door to fully open (rotate 90 degrees)?

**Count Iblis**, Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at 12:25pmThe answer I posted was correct as far as I can see, the problem may well be a typo in the problem itself, e.g. a 400 gram ball slamming into the door at the speed of a speeding car is not going to "slowly" open the door.

Anyway, it's a complete waste of time to e.g. try to see if what was meant is 3.5 m/s. I would suggest forgetting about this problem and moving on to another problem, you simply say that you did the problem correctly, that the teacher made a mistake and that you demand full marks for this problem.
